Lunch is a very important meal in the day. But it is also yet another chance to learn something new. It is not just about eating. Learning where food comes from, how it is grown/ made, and how it is prepared, are all extremely important lessons every child should know. Because it is through these lessons that they come to respect and appreciate not only the food itself, but how much work goes into it’s preparation for their enjoyment. This is the core of our dietary education system.
We at Happy Horizons also have a partnership with “ Organic Sumida Farm”. This allows us to procure various completely organic vegetables to include in our lunches. And occasionally the children are allowed to participate in the preparation of their own meals.
